Previously, MJ didn't want to be "walking on egg shells" wondering if something he did in Philly would hurt his gal Ashley, back home. Now, MJ has come to the realization that no one compares to Ashley and he is willing to give up the Philly nookie so that he can be in a committed relationship with her.
"I cannot wait to make out with you," MJ says to Ashley, anticipating her arrival in the City of Brotherly Love. Turns out the same time Ashley is going to be in town, one of MJ's best friends, David will also be in town. David is just "blowing through", while Ashley has planned a trip. Does anyone see where this is headed? Ah, Landon does. "It just doesn't work very well to have your buddy and your girlfriend in the same place," Landon warns.
After a serious of unfortunate events, Ashley finally arrives and she and MJ have some quality kissy time together before David arrives. The first night David is in town, Ashley is beat from all her traveling and just wants to go to bed. Meanwhile, David wants to go out drinkin'. MJ doesn't know what to do, so he drags his girlfriend out drinking with his best friend. She pretends like she's okay with it, but she is not. And, by the way, MJ does an excellent job of ignoring Ashley while they are out drinking.
MJ and Ashley spend some time alone the next day and see the sights of Philadelphia. Ashley asks if he has done anything more than kissing with anyone in Philly and MJ owns up to the fact that he has and, according to him, Ashley takes this news well. Hmm, that doesn't sound right.
The two lovebirds must say goodbye and when Ashley arrives home, Ashley complains that she wants to talk to him without being recorded. "I just have some questions for you," Ashley says, while she giggles nervously.
MJ is frustrated that Ashley can't just talk to him about whatever is on her mind, so he hangs up on her.
The next day, MJ learns that now Ashley wants to go out and date other people. She explains that her heart was there for him four months ago when he called her saying he needed his space. With three weeks left in Philly, MJ is bummed that he won't have someone waiting for him back home. His safety net is gone and it's scary.
During their night out, Landon learns from David that the MJ he has known in Philly is totally different that the MJ at home. Landon is shocked that he has learned more about MJ in five minutes with David than in the entire time they have been in Philly together and this has him questioning his bond with MJ.
In bed, in their underwear, Landon and MJ have a heart to heart about their relationship. MJ explains that the only thing he hasn't shown in Philly is his anger, then he admits that he could do a better job of opening up and letting people in. At the end of their conversation, both understand each other better.
